A Hymn: Ye Are My Friends

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

a-hymn-ye-are-my-friends

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.


I Have Found a Friend In Jesus - The Lily of the Valley (Lyrics)

The Composed Song

1. Henceforth, I ‘ll again not call you my servants any more

‘Cause servant do not know what his master doeth

However, what I will call thee is my very good friend

Therefore, I have even called you my good friend

Everyone that even has keepeth the statute I laid down

Even all the people are even my friends

No greater love than this one hath even a friend shown

That a person lays down his life for his own friends

Refrain/Chorus

You are even my friend and that when ye ‘re doing

All the commandments that I have given you

A friend there be that sticketh closer than brother

Even Jesus Christ is this type of friend


2. I am the one who chose you, you have not chosen me

And I ‘ve placed you at a very good position

That ye may even go out to be bringing forth fruits

And so that thine fruits should even remaineth

Yea, this is my ‘mandment that ye love one ‘nother

Even as I have shown my love unto thee

When you are doing even this all men shall even know that

Ye are even indeed my disciples

Refrain/Chorus


3. Just as even it is that its iron that sharpneth iron

So is a true friend e’en unto his friend

True friend will not even leave you, no not even for once

For ever he ‘ll even stick unto thee

He ‘ll stay even by thee during the drought or rain

And he ‘ll be helping you in your weaknesses

Jesus only is the friend who can do this for man

And Jesus Christ alone is the true friend

Refrain/Chorus


4. For we ‘ve even gotten a friend that exceeds world’s friends

When we ‘re talking with him we have confidence

For we have been set free and we are no longer slaves

In his name we can ask for just anything

Whatsoever that we ask even in Jesus name

That thing God will even do for us

For we ‘re obeying his wills, our faith ‘re r’posed in him

He ‘ll even answer the request of his friends

Refrain/Chorus
